Well this week brings you a new GeekList moderator. It's gonna be tough to match Rick's glowing reports but I'll do my best. As usual, this week we had some great peeps with some equally great games.

More information about the group and a schedule of game nights is available at www.boardgames.meetup.com/495.

We also have a guild on BGG. It is here: www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/433

Here's what we played-------

If you pull up to a table at LBGG and the game laid out looks like it was just printed on someone's home computer, good guess John brought it. I could make a comment that he plays these games as good as they look but I'd never do that my first week of handling the list. So instead I'll simply say kudos to Kwang!

Kwang: 92
Travis: 52
Mike: 50
Brian: 45
John: 41

From hopping a train to cruising along the Mighty Miss, the Wabash group traveled. And it seems that by water or by land Kwang is the one to beat.

Kwang: 1st
Mike: 2nd
Brian: 3rd
John: 4th
Travis: 5th

As a side note, on the score sheets there was a lot of clarifiers and excuses but the editorial board thought it was in everyone's best interest to not publish the comments to protect the innocent.

On the other side of the room we had a group traveling to the fruit filled hills on the mediterranean island of Mallorca. No steam power here, simply the sweat of your brow and your ever fickle donkey and kart. In the end Eric got his donkey in gear to eek out a win.

Eric: 54
Nate: 50
Mandi: 33 (wins the tie for 3rd by having more fruit than Amy.)
Amy: 33

From riding donkey carts in the Med, the Finca group hopped a train to see the sights of North America. This time Mandi saw the most sights and by the smug smile after the game had a truly fulfilling travel - not to mention gaming - experience.

Mandi: 104
Eric: 96
Nate: 87
Amy: 82

Our third group tonight traveled to ancient Rome during the time of Vestal Virgins (of which was mentioned way too much), Gladiators and Publicans. In the end . . .

Derek M. met the victory conditions first and had the highest total for 33.
With Peter close behind at 22.

And for the record yes Mark, Rick and Bill also played but were perhaps too distracted by the VV's?

After Tribune and all the talk of VV's Rick, Derek M., and Bill decided to "cool off" by heading to the Arctic to play with penguins. After a while of rule tweaking, they were off collecting fish with Derek once again showing "hot" or "cold" he is cool as ice.

Derek M: 37
Bill: 25
Rick: 20
